I’m planning to separate out my food posts into their own blog. Turns out, the names I want are either taken or lame. Kitchen Alchemist – gone. Likewise Kitchen Alchemy. Crazy Noodle and Crazy Noodles have been nommed. Foodienomicon? Too geeky. Odd Cuisine? Doesn’t sound tasty. Should I avoid bad puns and cliches in the title? It’s not about recipes so much as it is going from an idea to a dish, for which a recipe is a snapshot of how it was done.
Coming up with a name is going to be harder than doing the actual blogging. I do have one name that I like, but I’m going to ruminate on it for a day or two, and I’m not going to jinx myself by saying it here.
I’ve been brainstorming chili recipes for the cookoff at work in mid-November. Fish-taco chili with cilantro pesto? Chocolate chili? Cherry-pork chili? Raspberry-chipotle chili? Szechuan-orange beer chili? Redeye chili?
I think I’m automatically in the “other” category in the cookoff.
I need a cheese-ball recipe for the zombie brain mold I borrowed. And NO, I’m not going to name a blog “Zombie Brain Mold.” I’d get the wrong class of hits all the time, and lots of pissed off Romero fans.
